Mommin’ ain't easy. We hear this often and we know it to be true, but our social feeds tell us otherwise. With cameras available constantly, we are blessed to be able to capture the everyday moments and memories like...
One night, I sat in bed overanalyzing a situation as I'm inclined to do. Were my words understood? My actions accepted? Should I apologize on the off chance that someone might think differently of me if I didn't? This...
As a mother, heck, as a woman… as a human being, I look for things that will bring me some calm and peace during a hard day or week. I’m not talking massages or taking a walk. Albeit those...
